Hi Susie,

Do you have a Dutch heritage? Verdonck is a common Dutch last name! (I'm from the Netherlands).

Anyway, did you ever find your rental? I'm an agent from Laguna Beach and the area between Laguna and Newport is what I specialize in. Please let me know if you need any help.

Have a wonderful day,

Ron Thomas answered:
I doubt that you will find a 3000 sqft lot that doesn't have a Townhouse on it:
That sounds like a lot designed for a Townhouse, that would be part of a Development; the lot wouldn't be up for sale separately, because it is PART of the Development.
Most city lots would be 8-9,000 sqft minimum. (A 1/4 acre lot is about 10,000 sqft).

If you are serious about this; please contact a Realtor and do it right.

Christine Donovan answered:
I don't know if it can be avoided, but it seems people are more willing to buy as they see prices as more reasonable. In Costa Mesa, the number of sales in December 2008 were almost two and a half times more than in December 2007.

I have a thought on how the market can be helped which would have to be fleshed out by economists. What if the government were to subsidize some number of buyers at 1% interest on a 30 years fully amortized mortgage? Would those who are thinking decide now was the time to move before the number of subsidized loans were gone?

My approach to real estate will not change despite the market. I cannot control what the market is doing, and I can help my clients take advantage of great bargains, and for homeowners that have to sell, use the proper strategies to get their home sold quickly and for the most amount of money possible.
